All three eclipses of Eclipse Season 2018 have now been experienced.  Nevertheless, Eclipse Season remains strong in our personal and collective lives for a month or so.

Mercury and Mars are still retrograde, so all the needed information and experience have not been received yet.  Making big decisions and starting important projects are dependent now on what is still to be processed mentally, spiritually, and emotionally over the next month ofrso.

The 3 eclipses have shaken our lives, but what it all means is not yet fully determined.

Events that will result from the eclipses are still coming our way. The next six months or so will carry events that are most important for us all.

Much of what happens in the world in the next 6-8  months will be intense.  The Middle East is hot now; North Korea is hot again.

The current USA presidential administration has enacted policies that are beginning to isolate the USA from the rest of the world, including from its traditional allies like Canada and Europe.

The economy is much more fragile than the statistics that say it is strong. The next 6-8 months will show us more economic truths.

The culture war in the USA, which became more out in the open in Charlottesville last Eclipse Season 2017, will heat up again.

Our world is on the brink now, and the next 6-8 months will show us just how deeply we are entrenched in most challenging transformation.

Our human family all too often needs to be taken to the edge before it takes anything really seriously enough to make deep changes.

Weapons of Mass Destruction issues, Climate Change, an unfair economy, survival of the fittest mentality, rampant consumerism, and sexual and power abuse are all needing to be more seriously transformed into healthier ways of being for our human family.

The next 6-8 months should show us in a very real way what is urgently needing to be addressed.  World events will be challenging.

In personal lives, the New Moon Eclipse in Leo is energizing us to move forward, especially after Sunday the 12th.

But it is not time yet to go fully forward as some things still need to be figured out.   After Mercury goes back Direct on August 19 at 12:25 AM EDT, clarity will want to begin forming.

But Mercury will not be back to speed for another week or so after that, so you may have to wait a while longer before you know what to do.

And that times well with Mars Retrograde.  Mars Retrograde is a time to go inside and find out what you really want and what actions need to be taken.

Mars goes back Direct on August 27 at 10:05 AM. After that, knowing what you want and where you want to go will begin to get more clear.

Give Mars another week or 10 days after that before you may be absolutely sure what to do.

So by the time Saturn goes Direct on September 6, systems will be pretty much a go, but even more so after September 9 at the Virgo New Moon.

That is also a good marking point for the end of Summer Eclipse Season 2018.

Out in the greater world by that time, we should know much better where the Mueller investigation is headed.   Do they have enough ammo to go after Trump?

Also after Mars goes Direct, Mars being the god of war, countries like Israel will know more about the brewing conflicts it has with Iran and the Palestinians.

And the USA and North Korea will know more about where they stand with one another too.

And the tariff wars with China and sanctions against Russia, Iran and others will show more clarity concerning what happens next in each regard.

The world economy is also beginning to transform and it is so also in the USA.

As Saturn goes Direct on September 6, it has a journey in opposition to the USA natal Venus and Jupiter in September, October and November.

This is when the stock market and economy will be most susceptible to crashes or down-falls.

Things will not go back to “normal” anymore.  The old “normal” is gone. We are going forward into new horizons. And during this process a new normal will be formed.

Now can be a difficult time because the old chapter is gone and the new chapter has not fully formed yet. That can feel very insecure.

Others however may feel things have not been moving forward for them.  They feel trapped or stuck. They know they want to be liberated from the old ways, but they see no clear path forward yet. Or it feels very risky to move out of the stuck place.

Keep alert and present for signs and open doorways to getting out of the old pattern. Look and investigate options while Mercury and Mars are Retrograde.

Often times, the answers are options we have not previously considered. Open your mind and heart to the possibilities you have not previously considered.

Magic is alive for those who believe, so allow the wands of the Universe to pass over your heart and life.   You may be surprised.

Yet remember the old Arabic saying which paraphrased is something like, “trust Allah, but remember to tie up your camel”.

So yes belief and faith are important, but also keep your feet in the real world, proactively and  practically involved in your process of change.  Believing in magic is not about being passive in a fantasy world.

Synchronicity and signs from the Universe come to those who are aligned with their deeper soul and the Universe, and are also committed to their personal transformation and soul journey.

You can stay in the energy of the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo for a few days after it passes.

Mars in its Retrograde journey now goes from Aquarius to Capricorn on the 12th, allowing your search for what you truly desire to feel more real, directed and under your control.

When it goes back Direct on the 27th it will still be in Capricorn.

Later this week, on the overnight from the 18th to the 19th, Mercury goes back Direct.  Keep in mind that the 18th and 19th may feel kind of weird sometimes, with possibly a foggy mind, as Mercury is in transition from Retrograde to Direct.

Resist desires to jump to conclusions; let the process play out.

Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo and Astrology Forecast August 5-11

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on August 4, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We move this week into the last of three eclipses in Summer Eclipse Season 2018.

It is the last quarter of the Moon phase all week long until Saturday August 11 at 5:58 AM EDT.  At that time we experience a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Leo.

The Moon darkens more and more every day this week until after that New Moon in Leo.

That Leo Solar Eclipse New Moon on August 11 puts an end to a lunar cycle begun on July 12 at the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Cancer opposite Pluto.

That New Moon in Cancer found “climax” on July 27 at the Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius that was conjunct Mars and square Uranus. That lunar cycle ends on August 11 at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo.

And Retrograde Mars and Mercury Retrograde  have added more complication to a very intense time period.

I have gone through over 30 years of paying close attention to Eclipses, and this is one of the most powerful Eclipse Seasons I have experienced.

I have been witnessing people face some of their worst nightmares; experiencing emotions out of control; early traumas re-triggered;  difficult memories and people returning to them; hard decisions needing to be made. But also for some there has been rapid movement through their issues that led to big awakenings and breakthroughs.

And now, while Mercury and Mars continue being Retrograde, we move this week through ending this most challenging volatile lunar cycle before we experience renewal at the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Leo.

Time feels to be moving faster during this Eclipse Season, so we all need to take time to be alone in order to process our thoughts and feelings.  And this week the 4th quarter Moon, with Mercury and Mars Retrograde, demands we find inner time to connect with our inner home base in order to prepare ourselves for the fiery Leo jump start next Saturday the 11th.

Allow your deeper soul to come back to center (of course meditation and nature can be great aids for that).  Allow that deeper soul to connect better with source and Universe so you are more ready for the new beginnings at this Leo New Moon Solar Eclipse.

Remember that Solar Eclipses are always New Moons, but they are New Moons on steroids, so to speak.

And since we are experiencing a Leo New Moon Eclipse, we can expect this Solar Eclipse to affect our heart chakra, to want to open that chakra up some more.

Difficulties you run into around this Solar Eclipse may be because your heart has closed from old wounds that caused it to lose trust.

Now there is new energy and information that wants to come through you at this Solar Eclipse.  There is Love and Truth that needs your heart to be receptive.

This Eclipse also seeks to open your heart up so you can shine your light, so you can express your authenticity.

There may be a young child inside you that you have put on a time out.  He or she used to be more alive with spirit shining through.  Wounds, traumas, disappointments, and/or disillusions have tended to close its heart into not trusting.

Now you will have help from the cosmos into opening it up again.  Keep in mind that whoever was a part of the process of you closing your heart and not trusting must be let go inside your self.

It is you now who is closing that heart- not anyone else.  Work with the inner story that holds the key that keeps your heart locked up, the same key that can now unlock your heart and liberate you from the shackles of fear and hopelessness.

This last of the three eclipses of Eclipse Season 2018 will have some torque for moving you forward in your life in one area or another.

Keep in mind however that this New Moon Eclipse sits in a cocoon waiting for Mercury and Mars Retrograde to go forward again .

You will be able to get your life’s motor running with this eclipse, but the Retrograde planets may keep you waiting before the movement goes strongly forward with action or manifestation.

Your creative juices should be alive with this eclipse, and more so if you do not let your ego get in your heart’s way.  That is the Achilles Heel for Leo, its temptation to look too much into the mirror to grade how it is doing?

And remember that feeling you are worthless or no good also relates to your ego controlling you and your ability to shine your light creatively.

The Virgo New Moon this coming September 9, just two days after Saturn goes Direct, is a good marking point for the end of Eclipse Season and more grounded in reality new beginnings.

Out in greater America and the greater world, much is holding on by threads. Under the surface there is much instability and much shifting and changing.

It is the old establishment, which holds the old paradigm, that is breaking down.  There are now rather desperate attempts to keep it propped up, and as more of the new shows itself, more desperate controls and bullying will surface.

As the Trump administration faces more and more scrutiny and more attempts are made for his impeachment, he will likely take desperate measures to fight off these attempts or he will distract attention with events that will rally the citizens, like war.

The Middle East is truly on the edge now and chaos is growing around Israel and the Palestinians, Syria and Iran.

Keep in mind through all the challenging coming events in America and the world, that all the turmoil is related to the shifting tides out of an old paradigm and age and into a new paradigm and age.

And in America the split between cultures is on the verge of igniting into something worse than it already is.

So many families, friendships, and other relationships are in war mode with one another, with no real understanding or respect for one another. As I write this,  a rally in Portland Oregon is happening with far right and far left factions facing off.

Last year, also with a Solar Eclipse in Leo, a similar face off happened in Charlottesville Virginia.

Also the Trump doctrines are separating the United States from its traditionally closest allies, like Canada and Europe.   More separation than ever before is overtaking the United States in its global relationships, including trade wars with Europe and especially China.

Nationalism and Globalism are another facet of this separation between cultures. In a distorted dysfunctional way this is an attempt at finding Diversity Within Unity.

Nationalism is trying to find a country’s individuality without seeking unified connections.  Globalism sometimes looks like everyone giving up individuality for uniformed agreement.

Diversity within Unity is honoring one’s distinct individuality and way of life and at the same time knowing we are all one, all connected.

One should not have to sacrifice one’s authenticity in order to fit in.  But one need not sacrifice one’s needs for finding what unites us all despite our differences.

No pushing agendas this week or desperately needing quick answers or impulsive moves forward.

Early this week, Uranus goes from Direct to Retrograde. So the frequencies of Uranus (liberation, breaking out of boxes or “chains”, awakening, winds of change) will be strong in our energy fields.   

Also Venus leaves Virgo for Libra this week.   Venus in Libra puts emphasis on finding balanced connections between people and following social graces in one’s interactions with others.

All these shifts during the last quarter of the lunar cycle turn into the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo on August 11. This Eclipse will be square Jupiter in Scorpio, so this eclipse like the last two is powerful.

This brings a strong energy for moving forward with your heart leading the way. Please keep in mind that intensity will be strong and complete clarity because of the Retrogrades may not come easily.

Till next week
